About This Show

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. An all-girls soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, they navigate big questions and wage tiny battles with the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors.

The Wolves is a portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls. It captures these young women attempting to digest their ideas of world history while coming to terms with the reality of their changing adolescent bodies. The razor-sharp rendering of female adolescence challenges media-peddled stereotypes.

A debut play by Sarah DeLappe, The Wolves was a shared recipient of the first annual Relentless Award. The award, presented in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman, is the biggest cash prize given in American theater. After being part of Vassar & New York Stage and Film’s Powerhouse Theater season in summer 2016 and a successful off-Broadway run, The Wolves is returning for an encore engagement. Drama Desk Award nominee Lila Neugebauer (The Wayside Motor Inn) directs.
